Clarke's law

Clarke's law:
"Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic."

The future of conceptual art will be produced on or by computers.  Any conceivable conceptual art today can be produced by ones and zero.  Binary code i.e. ones and zeros stands for "on" and "off" on a transistor of the CPU.  Basically everything conceivable is made up of a series of only the commands on and off.  All existence and reality can be created by the flipping of a switch.

What will it mean to print out binary vs paint binary with the human hand?  (the juxtaposition of technology or lack of human written in a primitive human way.)

3D plotter creating an object out of the binary code making it.  The object for people and computers. both human and machine can then relate to the object.
